Gulcand Phirni (Rose Flavoured Rice Pudding)



         Phirni is a traditional Indian sweet / pudding  made of ground rice paste / flour in a thick milk based creamy dessert. But how about some Gulkand Phirni? It is absolutely an easy and at the same time a yummy dessert full of flavour. Do try it. 

          It goes well as an after-meal treat. I like having mine with pooris / parathas. It's divine. Serve them chilled preferably in small earthen bowls for an authentic touch. So check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.








  • 3 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 tbsp. rice flour
  • pinch of salt 
  • 2-3 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. gulkand
  • 1/2 tsp. cardamom powder
  • 1 tsp. rose water
  • 1-2 tbsp. raisins / chopped mixed nuts
  • a pinch of saffron soaked in 1 tbsp. milk
  • few rose petals, pinch of cardamom powder & few chopped nuts to garnish








          Bring the milk to a boil. Add the rice flour gently, simultaneously stirring the milk with a whisk.

          Add in the gulkand, chopped nuts, sugar, salt and cardamom powder one after the other. Keep stirring on a medium flame till it becomes slightly thick.

          When done, add in the rose water and transfer to a serving bowl or individual bowls. Garnish with the saffron milk, chopped nuts, cardamom powder and rose petals. Chill to serve.
